    Bi-pod recommendation.

    The claw or even just a v that can be swapped for your head. I like to go even more minimalist and just tilt my pan head all the way over and rest the forend of the gun in the little notch that is formed. It works pretty well. You can do it prone or shoot while sitting down. I'd mess around with your current tripod setup and just see how it works. Tilt that sucker all the way to one side and see if there is a natural spot for a rifle forend to lay. Good luck!

    Might not be for you, but I've given up on bipods and shoot off my tripod. Very versatile and stable

    Scouting a new area

    For that October hunt, look for North facing bowls and slopes. It's not a hard and fast rule but that hunt is hot and you'll usually find more deer in the shade. Once that sun gets up high enough deer will rotate into the shade.

    2019 Coues Video

    I've always loved the videos. And cool setup! How far out can you effectively video animals at?

    Unit 22 Youth Hunt

    The 22/23 youth camp is a great camp and there will be people more than happy to help you look for deer in 22 and get you started off on the right foot.
  6. This might be my favorite thread in years. Rooting for you man.

    Any idea on the weight? That's a neat setup

    Popcorn thread

    Federal funds = money taxed on hunting (guns) and fishing equipment, etc. Not general public funds. I wonder how many stolen trail cameras it takes to pay for a lawyer these days... Everything seems to be getting more expensive anymore.

    New setup for filming

    Cool setup! Is the video with a dedicated camcorder like that better or worse than say a phoneskope through a spotter? Looking for Max clarity and detail on a buck at 1000 yards?

    Spotter Upgrade?

    For the Meopta S2 guys... Which eyepiece did you go with? 20-70 vs 20-60 WA?

    Navajo Nation Elk Hunt?

    I know guys that have archery hunted it and went a full week without seeing an elk. Limited scouting though. My understanding is that the elk are in pockets. Some units are much easier than others to find them, and the nation guides have a tight leash on the pockets of elk making competition sometimes tough. Their experience has deterred me from applying. It's a long drive and a decent enough chunk of change for the tag that I haven't worked up the courage. Hopefully you hear something more encouraging from others

    Which Scope? Backpacking rifle

    Leupold vx3i CDS 4.5- 14.5 is right around 14.5 ounces. About as light as you're gonna get for that magnification. Also has an moa elevation turret. For a bunch more money that Swaro looks to be perfect for not much more weight
